Vet-fvckers is what they are.BrightOther
Vet-fvckers is what they are. Their Veteran's Service Office is severely lacking. Veteran's relying on using their GI Bill, beware. I've been to two other schools that are brick and mortar (Tallahassee Community College and Florida State University). Those two schools were actually VETERAN FRIENDLY. By that, I mean if you were relying on your GI Bill to pay for your tuition they would defer your tuition payment until you received your benefits. American MILITARY University doesn't do this. They put the veteran in a financial bind by requiring immediate payment at the time of registration. So, if the vet is directly out of service and wants to better themselves through further education, AMU requires you to already have the money OR TAKE OUT A LOAN so that you can pay them in advance FOR THE BENEFITS THAT THE VET HAS ALREADY EARNED. I contacted the VA GI Bill office and they said that the school could request an advanced GI Bill payment for me in order to cover tuition. I contacted AMU again to inquire as to whether or not they could do this for me, they said "uh yeah, we don't do that". It's bad when the VA says that AMU has a horrible rep when it comes to money. The VA has to go round for round with them. DON'T BE FOOLED BY "MILITARY" being in their title. I was, and I'm extremely disappointed that the two PUBLIC COLLEGES I attended rep better than this place. Their Financial Aid Office isn't much better. Go ahead and fill out your FAFSA application online at fafsa.gov, list AMU as the school you're attending, and be told by the Fin Aid Office at American MILITARY University that it wasn't completed in time even though it is stamped that it was processed 5 days prior to the due date and get screwed out of a $3717 pell grant. The worst part of both offices is that they deliver the bad news to you via email on Friday afternoons between 1630-1700 EST.

Question
Go to a different
Go to a different university...The teachers here do not respond to you until about 8 hours after you message them. The most unprofessional people I have dealt with in a very long time. After this semester, I am applying elsewhere. this school is a joke.

Question
Don't go here.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Don't go here. I went here only because of my GI bill and text book grants meant free school. Other than that, wasted experience. The "text books" are electronic copies, sometimed .pdf, sometimes vital source files, sometimes unworking internet links, and usually severely outdated in all cases. The busywork is monstrous. I cannot remember the last time I was graded on actual content learned, but boy don't get that APA citation wrong. APA, every instructor has a different idea of what format is. I have not been able to carry one report format over from one class to the next yet because they all have a different take on it, even though all of it is "APA". Word counts. Page requirments. Citations. That should be the name of this school. You could write a report on anything, belly button lint, but as long as it meets the page length, word count, and has a few cleverly inserted citations, bam, 'A'. Don't try and challenge anything either, because the professors will pawn it off to the "course development team" and you'll never hear another word. Don't expect too much effort from a professor either, because they're probably too busy in their "consulting business" or moonlighting with University of Phoenix or all of the other things they do that take precedence over your education that you bought and paid for. Just go somewhere else.
